The ham and bean soup was delicious, and the entres were good, though they lacked some flavor. I was pleased, but not overly impressed with those. The service was great and so was the ambiance. Overall a good experience.

This is a great option for people living around Midway area, for us did not worth the drive from south salt lake city.
The service was very good, everyone smiling and being nice (except the host)
We had a "fix menu":
- The starter was soup, very tasty and full strong flavours.
- The entrees were meat and chicken, nothing that we will remember tomorrow.
- The dessert was cheesecake, very good.

We always love eating at the Blue Boar Inn! The beautiful atmosphere and delicious food are definitely worth the drive!
My favorite meal is the Sunday brunch, but I have never been disappointed with lunch or dinner.
The building is beautiful and the scenery of the amazing wasatch mountains and midway are breathtaking. We eat here every time we stay in Midway.

We’ve been going to Blue Boar regularly for over 10 years. The executive chef may be the best chef in the West, if not the country. The restaurant is definitely expensive, but we think the food is well worth the cost. Ambience is quiet, warm and cozy. This restaurant is made for an un-rushed, luxurious experience. Service is just average though; servers are all very friendly, but really are not helpful on wine pairings or helping with menu selections. Table server etiquette and protocol is really substandard. We’d expect better for an establishment this great. Still, we keep coming back. This place is outstanding. Try the lamb!

Food was bland and overpriced for quality. Ambience is great and the people are nice, but someone needs to have a chat with the kitchen. Rice pudding was served on a PLATE, reminiscent of assisted living cafeteria, and was so bland that one of our party emptied a sugar packet into it. Same could be said of salt and a French dip.

We've been here several times and have enjoyed the food and service. Our last trip was a bit of a letdown as the service wasn't up to the usual bar of excellence. The only other concern was their Swedish Meatballs (which are usually amazing) were a bit overcooked and tough. The ambiance is still incredible and despite the minor disappointment with our last visit, we will go again.

The food was very disappointing. The schnitzel they are supposedly famous for was very tough. The chicken was dry and overlooked and needed some sauce to liven it up. The highlight was the beautiful scenery outside and the pleasant music. The ambiance is very nice and relaxing but the food was very disappointing. The dessert was nice as we shared a cheesecake.

Great food but issues with service. We stayed overnight for my 60th birthday. Despite noting this on our reservation and reminding the front desk upon arrival to include a single candle in my dessert, nothing was done. Our room’s makeup mirror in the bathroom was broken, as a drawer in the dresser. We emailed the manager/chef Eric with our issues but he never replied.

Spectacular ambience, not many places like it in Utah, and certainly the rest of the US. Memorable location and adjacent neighborhood in Midway, one of a kind. Waiter went OUT OF HIS WAY to make us happy, believe me. Lunch menu is small but EXCELLENT and price is outstanding for the quality and atmosphere. Open Table reservation got lost, but was okay, they accommodated us, found it after lunch. We wIll return here regularly for any special event, weekday or weekend.

We've eaten at the Blue Boar Inn a number of times. This time was to celebrate my husband's birthday. The waitress asked if we were dining with them for a special event and we said yes. There was no mention the remaining time of our special reason of being there. Many restaurants offer the "Birthday" person a free dessert or coffee. Don't expect that from Blue Boar Inn. The food and main service was very good. The atmosphere lovely and relaxing.

The Blue Boar is usually our choice for special occasions and this was one of them. We were disappointed this time though. My husband ordered a medium well steak and it was completely cooked all the way through. Our waitress was stressed out and made us feel like we needed to hurry through our meal. We were also swatting flies away the whole time. This meal wasn’t up to their normally high standards, and it might be the last time we go for a while.

Disappointed with Sunday brunch. The service was extremely slow. The smoked salmon omelet was over cooked, dry as were the potatos. I asked for hollindais sause to get it down. $10 mimosas and bloody marys!! Yikes.

We had a wonderful anniversary dinner at the Blue Boar Inn. The setting was perfect and being able to dine on the patio was a nice treat. The food was delicious, the portions were generous and the service was professional & attentive. The price paid for the value of the meal and the ambiance was exceptionally good. Highly recommend this restaurant for special occasions, as well as regular nights out. I have had lunch here a few times and it is a great lunch spot too!
